Donna Cartmell (Little Gigglers Childminding)

Little Gigglers Childminder is an OFSTED registered childminding service based in Ingleby Barwick. I have been a childminder for over 16 years. I work with my husband and our daughters who are fully registered assistants with relevant first aid and safeguarding training if needed.

We have a dedicated play room and spacious conservatory which leads off to the patio, grassed and decked garden and play house. We have many various age appropriate toys and resources. The children can choose activities including arts, crafts, baking, stories, nursery rhymes, sand, water out door play in the play house and trips to local amenities.  

We enjoy time at our allotment, children and dig, play in the mud kitchen area, help plant and water and learn about growth and decay first hand. We also have quiet areas for children to relax, read and take a nap. 

We endeavour to provide a caring and fun environment for children to learn and develop.

We work closely with other childminders in Thornaby and Ingleby Childminding group we support one another to offer the children social outing opportunities, many joint fund raising events such as Barnardo’s big toddles, Red Nose Day and other annual get togethers for parents and children for example; Christmas parties.

We deliver the early years foundation stage and offer the 15 and 30 funded hours for 2, 3 and 4 year olds.

We received the 'Outstanding' grading from OFSTED on our last three inspections. The most recent inspection was in November 2019.
